Walter White was almost a Phillies fan but that would have made him too unlikable

We've had to own up to Pukemon (1, 2, 3), the guy who threw a snowball at Santa back in the 60s, Susan Finkelstein, Ed Rendell, etc.

But all of those people who considered themselves Phillies fans would have been saints compared to the meth-making madman that is Walter White from AMC's hit television show "Breaking Bad."

One of the shows writers recently tweeted out a photo of Cranston/White rocking a Phillies jersey. Philly.com's Brian McCardle explains:

Thomas Schnauz, one of the writers on the show, tweeted out a photo of Bryan Cranston, the actor who played White, wearing a Phillies jersey from an unused scene from the show's third season.

The reason they chose not to use it? According to Schnauz, the writers "realized that would make him too unlikable."

*SPOILERS BELOW*

So, just to recap: poison a young boy named Brock and allow your best coworker's special lady friend to die in her sleep right in front of you? Not to mention melting countless other human bodies with Hydrofluoric Acid and 18 other heinous acts? Still likable enough.

Wear a Phillies jersey? WAY TOO UNLIKABLE.

And if you were wondering why Cranston/White was rocking a Phillies jersey, Schnauz later explained that he was goofing around on set one day but that Cranston is actually a Phillies fan in real life.
